### Explanation of multiplication by 10, 100, 1000 etc.

Let's start with the explanations of multiplying a number by 10. This is basically very simple. Here a zero is simply added to the number and we have the result.

Multiplication by 10:

• 5 · 10 = 50
• 8 · 10 = 80
• 12 · 10 = 120
• 14 · 10 = 140
• 17 · 10 = 170

Next, let's look at multiplying by 100. You take the original number and add two zeros to it for the result.

Multiplication by 100:

• 5 · 100 = 500
• 8 · 100 = 800
• 12 · 100 = 1200
• 14 · 100 = 1400

When multiplying by 1000, three zeros are appended.

Multiplication by 1000:

• 5 · 1000 = 5000
• 8 · 1000 = 8000
• 12 · 1000 = 12000
• 14 · 1000 = 14000

We summarize:

Note:

If we multiply a number by 10, 100, 1000 then the following applies:

• When multiplied by 10, the number becomes a Appended zero.
• When multiplied by 100, the number becomes two Zeros appended.
• When multiplied by 1000, the number becomes three Zeros appended.

### Multiplication for decimal numbers

The next step is to multiply a number with a comma (decimal point) by 10, 100 or 1000. Here, too, we start the multiplication by 10. The decimal point in the result slides one place to the right.

Multiplication by 10:

• 3,12 · 10 = 31,2
• 6,52 · 10 = 65,2
• 45,12 · 10 = 451,2
• 78,99 · 10 = 789,9

Now point numbers are to be multiplied by 100. In the result, the comma slides two places to the right.

Multiplication by 100:

• 3,12 · 100 = 312,0
• 6,52 · 100 = 652,0
• 45,12 · 100 = 4512,0
• 78,99 · 100 = 7899,0

Now point numbers are to be multiplied by 1000. In the result, the comma slides three places to the right.

Multiplication by 1000:

• 3,12 · 1000 = 3120,0
• 6,52 · 1000 = 6520,0
• 45,12 · 1000 = 45120,0
• 78,99 · 1000 = 78990,0
